5 great new features Snapdragon 855

Qualcomm Snapdragon

Snapdragon 855 — new top-end mobile platform from Qualcomm — has become one of the most important technology announcements of the beginning of December this year and is already discussed earlier. After all, this chipset will find application in many of the most productive flagship 2019, including version Galaxy S10 from Samsung. Next year waiting for the advent of 5G networks and 855 Snapdragon will be the processor of the smart phones that support wireless connections the new generation.

Qualcomm has managed to significantly expand the capabilities of its new premium-class chipset, which is likely to have considerable spread in the most impressive smart phones of next year, running developing Google Android mobile operating system. In the article Daniel Petrov (Petrov Daniel) published by phonearena.comwere considered the five most impressive new features of the Snapdragon 855.

First implemented HDR10+ and “true” HDR games

The new format HDR10+ is designed for recording and display video with high dynamic range. New Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 finally supports system-level shooting professional level.

“True” HDR in games means more realistic graphics rendering.

Display fingerprint scanners 3D Sonic

The era embedded in the screens of smartphone fingerprint scanners have already begun. It is expected that Galaxy S10 will find a use of such an innovative component. Qualcomm has provided hardware support for this technical solution. As reported, Samsung is preparing ultrasound scanner of the second generation and now there is also hardware support for fast reading and a more secure authorization.

3D Sonic is trained in the process and eventually will be read faster. Technology provides support of reading through the glass of 1 mm thickness.

Dual-frequency GPS

Previously, such technology has already found application in Huawei Mate 20 Pro using advanced chip — BCM47755 from Broadcom. Qualcomm also introduced the ability to support dual-frequency GPS for all future phones that will find a use Snapdragon chipset 855.

This means that the technology will be more sure to work in big cities with tall buildings or on the trails. Pie in Android implemented the ability to provide more precise positioning using measurements from other sensors — accelerometer or barometer, for opredennyh height. This technology is also seen as “double-frequency” because it can take more than one radio signal from each satellite at different frequencies.

With Snapdragon 855 this opportunity will be available without the use of additional chips.

Video playback 8K 360 VR

Detail video virtual reality depends on many factors, including the compression and the quality of lenses. But one thing is clear — 8K resolution provides higher resolution than 4K, ceteris paribus.

Snapdragon 855 can handle 8K video playback 360 VR. However, this feature remains a niche, as one can only imagine the size of 8K video. But the presence of this possibility shows how powerful the Snapdragon 855.

Bokeh in portrait mode at 4K

In Snapdragon 855 found a use new ISP (image signal processor, image signal processor) — Spectra 380, which will begin a new era of photography on phones. Qualcomm notes that the CV-ISP (Computer Vision Image Signal Processor, image signal processor with computer vision) will be provided with advanced features of video recording.

Spectra 380 ISP, for example, sposoben to provide bokeh effect for video like it does Mate Pro 20, i.e. blurring the background behind a person or object, simulating a wider aperture and providing in portrait mode rendering 4K video HDR at a speed of 60 frames per second. That’s great, but until the users can see how it works on a different chip, for Android smartphones from Huawei Kirin 980.
